Just finished up my website the other day.  I’m away from my home computer so I have kinks to fix and some things to smooth out when I get home, but feel free to check it out and know how you feel.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

What Became of The Collar City

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnysimon on November 15, 2008

I had the opportunity this summer to intern with documentary photographer Brenda Ann Kenneally.  I was logging video for a personal project on her father, but got a chance to look at photos and footage of one of her other long term documentary projects “Upstate Girls”  She just put this video on her website The Raw File and if you haven’t seen much of the project this is a great introduction into the lives of these women and the context of where they live, economically depressed Troy, New York.  Look out for a web series and print publication of the whole project in the spring of 2009.  Truly remarkable work.

Return To The Mennonites

Haven’t seen much of the Mennonites for the last month.  Took a drive out to Logan today and hung out at the school for the afternoon.  More to come.
